Is Proff Hoff’s video about Ebony Maw being a cash grab designed to counter Corv & Ghost justified?

    I follow his channel to see the non-unit store offers when I was not able to play the game; to avoid missing out offers.

    Got skeptical when he says things about how poor the marketing team is etc.

    I believe the data-mined purchases is pointing towards a significant segment of player base taking up the unit store offers.

    This is gonna get lost in a wall of text, but the way I see it is as a higher key version of champ interactions like massacre vs red skull, dormmamu vs ultron, or Angela/VTD/any buff reliant champ vs dr strange. It’s just one fight though, no biggie. If you scout your war path and see an ebony maw, bring proxima (can parry his projectile attacks.......) even if you run Corvus. Bring wasp if you run ghost.

    If you don’t use synergies, bring omega, domino, cap iw, void, sabretooth, stark spidey, archangel, Hyperion etc.

    Go for far reaching, heavy centered champs that you can heavy counter with. Just like you don’t bring massacre or havok to fight red skull, don’t bring Corvus or ghost to fight maw.

    Lol this is totally going to get shut down we’re speculating salaries and talking about political journalism now 🤦🏽‍♂️

    Go drunk forums, you’re home.

    Yeah it’s gonna be shut down by the time i wake up lol.
    But going back to what you said about scouting, I agree with you, if you prepare properly and don’t put all your eggs in one basket meaning not going Brian grant and using one champion for all of attack. The instances where powerhouses are reduced to below average for one fight is very small.
    Agreed I run 3 solid attackers no (synergy champs) ie my lowest attacker is an r4 ghost rider (danger sense) but rhata only if my boss gives blade a huge advantage
    Otherwise I run Capt and stark r5 and an r4 blade to clear lanes
    I think at this point in the game you need at least two attacking champs. The third can be used for synergy (wasp for ghost or killmonger for void or blade for stark {just some YouTuber teams from the past} etc)

    Funny story—about a few weeks after bg stopped using Medusa for attack I pulled her, awakened her, and ran the royal trinity for a while. Three star black bolt and three star Karnak probably felt soooooo important lol.

    Similar situation here pal, for alliance war I run path ‘I’ for attack which as the stun immune mini boss, depending on the mini boss defending if it’s an auto block or evade I always run: prox 1/10 4*, duped Corvus 4/55 and with Duped blade 4/55
    Any other champ I usually do Corvus blade plus GR sometimes I switch GR with Sabretooth 4/55
    So even if I do run into Maw I have back up if I decide not to scout

    I can't believe this thread is on the 3rd page. Maw isn't that good and he's mystic. And 99% of the things people call cash grabs aren't. I still think making Corvus unable to damage him (mostly) is a little over the top but whatever.

    I wouldn´t call it cash-grab, but it´s still a really lazy move by Kabam. Cannot prevent players from using their skill with a certain champion by creating challenging fights which would drive people into using other champions? Just get a champion in that completely counters their champion...

    I think they should have done what they did with ultron for ebony where his 5th hit was a guaranteed crit so he couldn’t hit after 4 hits so they made it so he would miss his 5th hit and the counter would be reset I think they should do this for corvus where he can spend his charges while missing
  • Lvernon15Lvernon15 Posts: 1,930 ★★★★
    It’s not necessary a cash grab, but the fact Corvus can’t counter him really whatsoever is a bit bs, I think it should’ve been like guaranteed crits lose 80% damage

    May I ask you why your even using corvus on maw
  • PeterQuillPeterQuill Posts: 1,056 ★★★
    I just dont understand the appeal of his videos showing other peoples crystal spins. I hate that so much for some reason. It shouldnt bug me but it does. I watched one of them and cringed all the way through and then never again.

    He'll get a death for sure (against ghost or corvus), but have you tried fighting against Mr Sinister in AW with Corvus? Same situation...you time out most times. So you take the loss against the nose...and go in with someone else for the second bite of the cherry.

    Same with Maw...if you keep on going into the fight over and over with Ghost or Corvus, then you REALLY deserve to give Kabam all your money!! Just quite the fight, lose 50% health but at least Ghost or Corvus is still alive and go into fight again with 1 of your other 3 champs...PROBLEM SOLVED!!

    So guaranteeing MAYBE 1 death per AW isn't a cash grab...and also not a reason to boycott AW, Killmonger on 29 is more than a cash crab than Maw will EVER be
  • ZuroZuro Posts: 1,329 ★★★
    Like he literally counter like 4 champs in the game out of like 100+ characters it's not that hard to use anyone else

    It's far from guaranteed. If you scout and plan properly, you won't have to use Corvus against Maw you won't die against him.

    The champion is fairly balance I think. As we saw, his damage was terrible and as a Ghost player myself I do agree that she is very op and perhaps some sort of counter was needed.

    That guys should never be taken seriously. He has posted the most ridiculous stuff about this game. That’s why I unsubscribed his channel. He once posted about OG Vision having OP attack, showed the stats from someone who had him but failed to realize the guy was extremely boosted at the time. He’s the Alex Jones of MCOC You Tubers.

    Any science class champ can counter EM. Wasp rinses him down

    Not to mention every champ in the game should have a counter.

    Hi all,

    We welcome feedback about Champions but a lot of this thread is off topic and not about the game. If you'd like to discuss Ebony Maw please do so in threads such as the spotlight. Thanks!
